Karen Veroy-Grepl is a Full Professor of Computational Science in the Centre for Analysis, Scientific Computing and Applications (CASA) at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).  Key areas of expertise include numerical methods for partial differential equations, model order reduction, and uncertainty quantification.  Her current research focuses on the development of reduced order modelling techniques for multi-scale simulations in mechanics and on data assimilation and optimal experimental design. 


Karen Veroy-Grepl received her B.S. from the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines, and her S.M. and Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA, USA.  After spending two years in industry, she returned to academia in 2009.  She was appointed a junior professor at RWTH Aachen University in 2010, and was promoted to professor in 2014.  Veroy-Grepl was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2019, and joined the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University in 2020.  She serves on the editorial board of two international journals, and on the scientific advisory council of the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE).
